An Android phone is a powerful, high-tech handset that runs on Google’s Android operating system. Pick an Android mobile phone and you can choose from hundreds of great applications and multitask with ease. You’ll also get a superb touchscreen display, a great camera and regular software updates that add great new features to your smartphone. A tablet or slate is a computer that is entirely touchscreen operated. Unlike a netbook, laptop or desktop PC, tablets dispense with physical QWERTY keyboards entirely. Tablets, specifically those with the Android OS, are currently the hottest things in the gadget world, with many predicting they will replace traditional computers very soon.

Mobile and tablets are two devices that are also two of the commonest gadgets that people use to communicate and connect with the rest of the world. Only a year and a half, we only had mobiles, smartphones at that. But then Apple introduced a totally new device called iPad, and the world has not been the same again. Today, virtually all mobile manufacturers are involved in making tablets, and the concept has caught the imagination of people the world over. There are many differences between a mobile and a tablet though that will be highlighted in this article. A tablet is a mini computer, and can perform most of the functions that one can perform on his laptop. One can surf the net, take pictures, chat with friends, use it as an eBook reader and send and receive emails. He can also perform some basic computing functions, and watch videos and listen to MP3 or songs from the net as he can on a laptop. If anything, a tablet, having a smaller 7-10 inch screen and very small weight is much more portable than a laptop or even a notebook. However, it is not a mobile, which is a device mainly, used for its function of making and receiving voice calls

Imagine a pc or laptop but with all the portability of a mobile device. Imagine a mobile device with excellent computing facilities, high end to enough to support all the various file formats which a pc can support, convenient enough to take all your notes and everything else you need. That is what defines a tablet. A mobile or handset is only meant for taking calls or sending sms and some gprs. But a tablet may be able to make calls but with that it combines all the features of a computer. Today tablets like samsung galaxy tab can be used to make video calls, watch hd videos and shoot them, they support magic pens which can be used to take notes. They are fully touch enabled with a convenient keypad and a number of ports for external connectivity. A handset lacks it all. Browsing the net is a breeze on a tablet with the excellent touch responsiveness and wide screens. Today even though people have a laptop or pc a tablet is prefered over it because of all the luxury it offers.

handset is a device the user holds to the ear to hear the audio sound. Modern-day handsets usually contain the phone's microphone as well. handset was usually wired to the base unit, typically by rather flexible tinsel wire. Tablets are predominantly being used for email, internet and multimedia currently, but we are also seeing the business sector look towards tablets for their solutions as well. Tablets are a relatively new entry to the Android ecosystem but even so, they’ve quickly become a popular gadget to have. Being always-on and always connected has made it the go-to gadget for checking email, catching up on social sites and browsing the web. On top of all that, some versions can even make and receive calls, turning them into an ideal all-in-one device.

Handset as the name suggest can be put in your hands with ease., You can carry it with ease with you, you can put it in pockets and now a days mobile as many functions like a PC. Now on other hand, Tablet Phone are quite bigger as comapred to normalk handset, they are costly as well. If you buy them n use them only for calling functions, then its just waste of money. Also they are more oe less like PC.
